The Overland Corner is celebrating 50 years since the time capsule has been lowered. This is a community event brought to the region by the National Trust and its volunteers and major sponsor Berri Barmera Council. We are also working with Phil Reddy to ensure a successful event.
Final catering numbers are to be confirmed , however we have the following so far; Miss Daisy, Lefties, Cobby Steam Friends, Barmer Lion's Club, Little Italy, Awesome Hotdogs, Strawberries, Drinks Van. We are currently making contact with more stall holders for the day.
There will be a photographic display on the day, where we will encourage community members to add to the stories behind the photo. We can see many relatives of the original capsule event being present on the day.
The Classic Car club will be there, numbers to be confirmed. There will also be guided tours of the mine behind the hotel by a paleontology specialist.
We are expecting it to be a major event for the region.
